    What's the resolution of your television? Usually on the back of most LCD TVs it will display the ----x---- resolution. And, for example, a 1080i means that the screen will display 1080 pixels wide at a 16:9 aspect ratio.

    So in short, your Mac Mini will only display at ~1360 because it's maxing out the resolution of the screen.

    I know on my Mac Pro, my monitor displays 1680x1050 at max, and won't display anything more than that, even if the video card supports it.

    oh i see. the resolution is Maximum Resolution 1366 x 768 I just checked.

    Thanks for the feedback I was wondering why it wasn't filling the whole screen....
